SINGAPORE, May 30, 2006 (AFP) – Southeast Asias have the unhappiest sex lives in the world, making love less often than people elsewhere and getting the least satisfaction from it, a global survey showed Tuesday. Mexicans scored the highest sex satisfaction levels with 74.5 percent declaring they were very satisfied, followed by Brazil at 64.5 percent and Spain at 56.6 percent. French people have sex most frequently while Mexicans are the happiest in bed, according to the survey commissioned by drug giant Pfizer, maker of the anti-impotence drug Viagra.

The survey of almost 13,000 people across 27 countries revealed the global sex frequency average to be 6.5 times a month, with 50 percent of those surveyed saying they were very satisfied with their sex lives.

Southeast Asian couples fell below the benchmark levels, with Indonesians coming closest to the global average, indulging 5.75 times per month.

Singaporeans have sex 4.55 times per month, Thais 4.3 times and people in Hong Kong 3.55, the survey found.

There was no direct correlation between regularity and satisfication.

Malaysians, who had sex an average of just 3.5 times per month, were the happiest in Southeast Asia, with 42 percent say
